The result is likely to spell the end for Greece manager Claudio Ranieri, but it is even more historic for the visitors who are traditionally one of the biggest whipping boys in European football. As Greece failed to get out after a set piece, HB striker Edmundsson swept home an effort to give the Faroes an incredible victory – has there ever been a bigger shock in international football?
